Nothing fancy

Old Fashioned, B-Side

Illustration by SERENE LUSANO

B-Side comes from the people behind Shady Lady Saloon, but without any of that high-end cocktail business—when I asked for fancy, the bartender looked at me like I was hopeless before making me an Old Fashioned ($6). Turns out it was exactly what I wanted. Four Roses bourbon, lemon and orange rinds and a cherry: a smooth and sweet take on a staple. Between the aced fundamentals and the Smiths on vinyl rotation, I could come to like this cozy little place. (B-Side people: Hit me up if you ever want a doom metal DJ to utterly destroy the vibe.) 1430 S Street,
